Just one more day to go for the one-a-day challenge! You can enter the April 1 giveaway anytime before midnight ET tomorrow, March 31. The prize is a Tree of Life pendant. To enter just post a comment on any One-a-day blog post during March, and tell me what you think of a piece and why. Read all about it here.
Today's piece is a summer Tree of Life. I recently found this 2" aventurine gemstone hoop and thought it would be pretty framing a tree. There was just one, and I don't know where to get more. Let me know if you do! The leaves are a mixture of aventurine, malachite, and tiny emerald chips. The wire is copper.
Apparently making a summery tree has no bearing on the weather outside. This is a tree in front of my house right now, 10 days into spring...
And this is my calm, adult reaction...
I am going to curl up on the couch tonight with my daughter and some blankets, and just watch the tube. See you tomorrow!

Love, love, love the Tree of Life. I have been checking every day but you know I can't comment while at work - at least not every day LOL. Beautiful work and great commentary. Keep it going.
